For years, Sean Combs and Cassie Ventura have reigned as one of the most iconic hip-hop couples. Unfortunately, according to a new report from People, Sean "Diddy" Combs and Cassie may have separated months ago. The couple went out for most of the last six years, at least. As People noticed, the pair with musical inclination officially revealed its relation with the public in 2012, although the rumors of a romance perhaps between them had been floating in Internet during enough time, from approximately 2007.
So far, neither Diddy nor Cassie have commented on breakup rumors. (Bustle approached Diddy and Cassie's representative, but did not receive an immediate response.) Having said that, PeopleThe last article of the publication cites an unnamed source who claimed that his break was the real deal. The source said People,
"The decision [to break up] He was friendly and they are still friends. Cassie will focus on her music and her career as an actress. "
We hope that the first part (and honestly, the second part too) is true. Because although the news of a breakup of Diddy and Cassie informed will likely prove to be a hard pill to swallow for fans, all on their own, it would be even more difficult if they had finished with their long battery of power on a bitter note. However, since neither party has yet to comment, fans may have to take the word from the source.
Those who have been following updates of the couple's relationship over the past decade will probably have a hard time forgetting the early days of Diddy and Cassie's romance, which was always quite epic, and sometimes quite dramatic as well. Assuming they did not really establish a relationship until 2012, it began several years after Cassie, then, on the verge of her eventual musical star, joined her future record label, Bad Boy Records, in the mid-2000s. In this context, it was not long after "Me & U", the 2006 Cassie banger that got most of us to middle school, launched for the first time. (The two would also collaborate on several tracks after that, like "Must Be Love" of 2009).
Fast forward to 2018. After a few months of silence on social media, both from Diddy and Cassie (regarding their relationship anyway), the internet was a bit affected on Wednesday, October 17, when several reports that claim that Diddy and Cassie had separated.
The first report came from LoveBScott, a celebrity news site that published a purportedly acquired statement of Cassie's performance, which seemed to confirm the breakup. Shortly after, the site published a follow-up report stating that Diddy is now in a new relationship with a model named Jocelyn Chew. Their relationship has not been confirmed, but if the reports claiming that Diddy and Cassie separated several months ago are legitimate, perhaps that explains the possible situation of the "new bride".
If Diddy and Cassie really separated, then it seems that they did it with the intention of keeping the details of their separation from the press, and away from the inquisitive eyes of fans on social networks. In light of that, it seems that the best thing that fans can do for them now is respect their privacy and hope that both are well. If it's really over, then the fans will have to relive Diddy-Cassie's glory days through the archives of Bad Boy Records, circa 2007.
